Hartford, Mch 9.
Dear Mr. Smith - All right - I've just written to Cable; + when he gives me his date I want him to furnish it to you + Gilder also, so you can work the N. Y. end of the Enterprise. Now, as to that Im- perial Dictionary: if you are boss of it, + can fur- nish it to me any cheaper than Osgood can, fire away + [underline] do [/underline] it; but if he can furnish it to me
[page break] 2 cheapest, just inform him that he has ordered it for me- + you can send the bill to him or me, which you please. But if you [underline] ain't [/underline] boss of said Dictionary, con- sider that I apologize, + take it all back, + never meant any harm in the [underline] first [/underline] place. And as it was a personal friend of yours + mine who told me you were boss of that Diction- ary, I will see that he apol- ogizes too. I will also make him eat the Dictionary, if I find I can afford that kind of a meal for him. Truly Yours SL Clemens
